Kyoto Protocol (Change) : 

Kyoto Protocol (Change) The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (aimed at combating global warming. The UNFCCC is an international environmental treaty with the goal of achieving "stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The Protocol was initially adopted on 11 December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan and entered into force on 16 February 2005. As of November 2009, 187 states have signed and ratified the protocol. The most notable non-member of the Protocol is the United States, which is a signatory of UNFCCC and was responsible for 36.1% of the 1990 emission levels.

History Global Warming : 

History Global Warming From the late 14th century to the end of the 19th century, the Earth experienced a "Little Ice Age." Extreme cold and harsh conditions caused several famines and the expansion of glaciers, most notably in the Alps, Scandinavia, Iceland and Alaska. However, by 1850 the temperature of the Earth had warmed considerably and scientists were looking for an answer. The first theory of global warming came in 1824 when French mathematician Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier discovered that the Earth's temperature was slowly increasing. Fourier argued that the earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation and reflects it back toward the earth. In the late 19th century Fourier's theory was labeled the "greenhouse effect" when Nobel Laureate Svante Arrhenius coined the term to explain how carbon dioxide traps heat in the Earth's atmosphere. Arrhenius believed that the greenhouse effect was responsible for the onset of the ice ages. By the 1960s, many scientists dismissed this theory in favor of the hypothesis of Serbian geophysicist, Milutin Milankovitch, relating climate change to the orbital changes of the earth. In the 1950s, amateur scientist G.S. Callendar warned that the greenhouse effect was true and dramatically impacting the atmosphere of the Earth. Callendar's claims were termed the "Callendar effect," and led to increased research on global warming. Over the next few decades, scientists developed ways to measure the Earth's climate and devised mathematical models to better analyze global temperature. This led to a steady rise in the belief that human activity was dramatically effecting the environment. Scientific studies began to predict that increased carbon dioxide emissions, due to increased use of fossil fuels, would trigger an outbreak of global warming.

How It Affects Your Health : 

How It Affects Your Health The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that even the modest increases in average temperature that have occurred since the 1970s have begun to take a toll. Climate change is responsible for at least 150,000 extra deaths a year--a figure that will double by 2030, according to WHO's conservative estimate. As with so many public-health issues, a disproportionate part of the burden appears to be falling on the poorest of the poor. That doesn't mean, however, that the comparatively wealthy--who account for more than their share of greenhouse-gas emissions--will escape harm. AIR We're used to thinking of industrial and traffic pollution as having a detrimental effect on air quality. But all other things being equal, rising temperature by itself increases the amount of ground-level ozone, a major constituent of smog. So many studies have linked higher ozone levels to death rates from heart and lung ailments that many cities issue smog alerts to warn those at risk to stay indoors. You can expect more and longer alerts. It gets worse. Higher levels of carbon dioxide favor the growth of ragweed and other pollen producers over other plants, according to Dr. Paul Epstein at Harvard's Center for Health and the Global Environment. In addition, ragweed churns out more pollen as CO2 levels rise. Scientists have tied local spikes in asthma and allergy attacks to increases in molds and emissions from diesel engines. Apparently, the molds attach themselves to diesel particles, which deliver them more efficiently deep into the lungs. Add a plentiful helping of dust storms (from, for instance, the desertification of Mongolia or northern Africa) and a rise in drought-driven brushfires, and you have a made- to-order recipe for increasing respiratory distress worldwide. The tricky thing about all those predictions is that you can't point to any outbreak or any individual's death and say, "This occurred because of climate change." But we know that good public health relies on a long list of factors--the availability of doctors and nurses, effective medicines, clean water, proper sanitation--and that even today, millions of people die every year of what should be preventable diseases. With global warming, you can expect the death toll to be even higher.

That´s Amazing The Global Warming : 

That´s Amazing The Global Warming This is matter of considerable controversy, with environmental groups exaggerate the potential damage and groups close to industry questioning the climate models and consequences of global warming by subsidizing both scientists to do likewise.Because of the potential effects on human health and the economy, and because of its impact on the environment, global warming is of great concern. Certain processes have been observed and have been linked to global warming. The decrease in snow cover, rising sea levels and weather changes are consequences of global warming that may influence human activities and ecosystem.

Reflections : 

Reflections English class is good, very little we like the English do not understand some things but we attempt to do well in class. Theacher, we like a lot the things we teach, we did not know how to create a blog, or even know all the tools you taught us in class. We liked the way we did is totally different class to those of more teachers, we think it is very good so we want to give us English V. Thank you very much.
